    Wellington, New Zealand

    Ongoing work to get the Port of Wellington as fully operational as possible after the earthquake continues.

    Port access was partially closed off for rail line replacement work which is causing traffic disruption. Gantry cranes and container terminal are still out of operation, however according to unofficial information, they will be ready for testing in August 2017. Currently, geared box ships have priority over all other vessels.

    Furthermore, Centreport intends to remove earthquake-prone buildings. A metal curtain will be erected alongside Waterloo Quay this month in preparation for the demolition of the former MSC (“Seaworks”) and Shed 29/G&A buildings.
